GIIS East Coast Campus teachers on the results:

Ms Geeta Puri, IGCSE Coordinator: It is with a great sense of pride that I wish our second batch of IGCSE students, congratulations on having achieved exceptional results. This has been possible with the unrelenting and conscientious efforts on the part of students themselves and the whole hearted support and guidance extended to them by their Principal, teachers and parents. We would like to attribute this stupendous success to the Bench- marking exercises conducted in school, which helped the students to recognize their strengths and weaknesses. It also helped them to set achievable goals for themselves and to work hard to attain them. Intensive revision sessions conducted in all subjects, at school also proved to be very fruitful.

I am glad to have been an integral part in supporting them through this journey and I wish the class of 2012 all the very best for their future endeavours.

Ms Alka Gupta, Maths Teacher: It is a great pleasure to see the excellent results achieved in IGCSE Extended Maths by the students. I extend my heartiest congratulations to the students and their families. Their sincere hard effort has made this possible. My best wishes for their future.
